February Haul, Part Dos

Hello again loves!

Hope you all had a great hump day! That much closer to the weekend! I finally took pictures of second half of my February hauls. (See first half here)This will be my last big one for a while, I am going to be limiting my polish buying for the next few months. I have accumulated polishes so quickly that I have not had a chance to use them all, so I will be playing some catch up. :) And I may or may not be running out of storage space. . .

All the pretties

Gilt City offered a $40 voucher for for only $20! Some new customers were able to snag a $15 off coupon too so it was only $5! I was one of those lucky few. Due to high demand the promo was changed and new customers were offered 20% off their order vs. $15 off. Still a great deal for some new polish though!

(L-R) CND Effects Jade Sparkle, Priti NYC Dusty Miller, Pop Beauty Mint Magic and OPI Did It On Em

I didn't think I was going to like any of the colors from China Glaze's The Hunger Games (Capitol Colours) Collection but I was wrong. I got a couple in a swap and some others from Sally's thanks to a $10 off $20 birthday coupon. (You can pick up these colors from the website right now for only $3.50 if you have a Beauty Club Card!)

(L-R) Smoke & Ashes, Stone Cold, Agro, Riveting and Fast Track

I picked up a couple more bottles of Cult Nails Toxic Seaweed after the presale was over (not pictured) and snagged some other colors while in the process. I am looking forward to some of the new colors that will be launching since I now have pretty much all of the colors I want from the existing collections!

(L-R) Enigmatic, Power Thief, My Kind Of Cool Aid, Bad DN and Awakening

My local K-Mart did not have all of the Jordana Glitters available so I ordered a few directly from their website. They cost a little more online($2.99 vs $1.99) but at least the shipping wasn't too bad. And I didn't have to drive around to a bunch of different stores trying to find them.

(L-R) Green Glitz, Lunar Lights, My Superstar and Bronze Fest

I have had my eye on a few other ManGlaze polishes so I placed another order through their Facebook store. There are only a few from their lineup that I am missing now too, so I hope they start releasing some new colors! ;)

(L-R) Hot Mess, Cabron and Fuggen Ugly

I placed a small order with Llarowe for the last of the Hits that were on my wish list. I had been waiting to get Hefesto forever! I kept missing it whenever it came back in stock!

(L-R) Hefesto, Atena, Demeter and Valsa

I will admit, I have avoided buying many Deborah Lippmann's. They are expensive and honestly I have not been drawn to any of her colors. But I could not pass these two up! I did pay full price for Mermaid's Dream (free shipping at least) on Zappos but I got Sweet Dreams for 15% off (free shipping too!) on HSN. (I heard a rumor that there is to be a similar purple flakie released!)

(L-R) Mermaid's Dream and Sweet Dreams

In my search for indie polish I came across Elixir Lacquers. There are a few more I would love to order, but I had to get my hands on these ones first!

(L-R) We Sisters Three, Kind Of Connery and With A K

I can not stay away from Etsy! Windestine had 2 more polishes listed that I just had to have! Both of these colors are so unique and down right gorgeous!
Yeah, I will just let you read these ones. ;)

And you guessed it, more polishes from Etsy shops! I got 1 more from Pretty & Polished and also bought my first colors from Dollish Polish!

(L-R) P&P Galactus, Why'd It Have To Be Snakes, I'm The Ghost With The Most Babe, He Slimed Me and Random Dancing

Ooooh and what do we have here? Major Nerd Lacquer haul! Not too long after I placed my first order Amanda closed up shop for a bit to get caught up on orders. I stalked her site waiting for her to open again, and placed an order almost as soon as it did! I am happy I did not wait because her shop was closed up again the next day! Luckily I had just gotten my tax return so I didn't feel so guilty buying all of the ones I wanted, including the 3 new colors she had added! :)

I just can't get enough! Up close photos below!

(L-R) Pinin' For The Fjords, Don't Panic, Cyanace Frictoin, The Quantum Bluniverse and The Selfish Green

(L-R) Regeneration, Holoday Mint, Exterminate and It's Just A Flesh Wound

(L-R) Cold & Calculating, Resolutionary, Antisocial Media and Event Horizon

Finally, here are some random polishes I picked up in some swaps thanks to a couple of nail polish exchange groups on Facebook. I was able to unexpectedly cross some major lemmings off my list!
(L-R) Lynnderella Bride Of Franken, Cult Nails Always Winning, OPI I Lily Love You, China Glaze L8R G8R, Orly It's Not Rocket Science & Rock Solid and Julep Emilie

Whew! It's alot of work putting together these haul posts! NOTD posts are so much easier, I will be looking forward to a little break! :) I am already on my 4th green manicure for the month! Behind in posts I know, but I will get one up tomorrow!

Hope you enjoyed seeing my haul, goodnight!

  1. Hot damn you've been busy! Your bank account must be tired! I'm so jealous though, you've got quite an impressive haul there!

    1. Lol, no joke, my bank account definitely needs a break! Luckily I have been supporting my habit primarily through swaps lately. :)

  2. Hey Brittany! I wrote the post about the draw on my blog, stop if you want :) A kiss and have a good weekend!

    PD: I love the matte nail polish, only around for Spain not find them anywhere.

  3. I love your post, thanks so much for linking to me! Hope you are enjoying your weekend! <3

  4. That nerd lacquer haul is amazing! It always makes me kind of anxious when I have too many untried polishes though - usually a sign I need to cool it with buying new ones :)

    1. I know what you mean! March has been a much slower month and I have been changing almost every day to get caught up ;)
